ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

Where we work

ActionAid Zimbabwe works with five Community Based Organisations (CBOs) to implement a 10 year international child sponsorship programme which began in 2006.

We have set up Local Development Programme (LDP) structures in Makoni, Chiendambuya and Nyanga in Manicaland, Hwedza in Mashonaland East and Nkayi in Matabeleland North.  More LDPs are currently being set up in Saunyama, Nyazura and Nyamaropa in Manicaland.

The purpose of setting up LDPs structures is to consolidate ActionAid's activities and increase impact in Zimbabwe. The LDPs are situated in such a way that more than one LDP may be situated in one district.

  • It is located in Makoni District in Manicaland Province, which is east of Zimbabwe.

  • It is located in Hwedza District in Mashonaland East Province, east of Zimbabwe.

  • It is located in Makoni District in Manicaland Province, which is east of Zimbabwe.

  • This is one of the three new LDPs AAIZ is currently setting up.

  • It is located in Nyanga District in Manicaland Province. AAIZ operational wards in this LDP are scattered to the north of Nyanga District.

  • This is one of the three new LDPs that AAIZ is currently setting up.

  • This is situated in Nyanga District in Manicaland Province.

  • Through the merger with MS Zimbabwe (ActionAid Denmark with support from DANIDA), ActionAid Zimbabwe took over partnerships with more CBOs and nationally based organisations to focus on promoting transparency and accountability within local government structures, the empowerment of women and youth trade justice. ActionAid also implements other projevct based programmes funded by various institutional donors such as DFID, ActionAid Netherlands, Australian Aid-UNICEF, Swiss Deveopment Corporation (SDC), Danish Television Show (DTV) and New Zealand Aid which has seen the organisation spreading its wings to other areas nationally.
